McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 33 of 100: A pint of Giving Up the Ghost Wizenbock which I sipped at the McMenamins New Tourist Bar, part of the Olympic Club Hotel in Centralia, Washington. According to the brewer:
“For multiple generations, our yeast works to make the great beer made here at Anderson School. But eventually, every yeast chain comes to an end. So let’s celebrate this little yeast strain that’s been making our ‘Fields of Gold’ Hefeweizen all summer long. Giving up the Ghost is a Weizenbock, or strong Hefeweizen, chock full of banana and clove aromatics. A light and fruity flavor balances out the hearty body of this traditional Bavarian Weizen. So, enjoy and let this beer warm your bones as we enter the colder months.” Measurements: 6.5% ABV • 18 IBU
My notes from that day read: “Definitely a German weizen ... distinct banana flavor! Bah! I for sure would NOT get it again!” August 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
